Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix

Total Time

I've come across a couple recipes that require self-fising corn meal MIX and couldn't find it in my local super market so had to go on line to get 'the formula'. The 'formula' comes from the Aunt Jemima website. If your recipe just calls for self-rising cornmeal go to Self Rising Cornmeal


  1. Mix together the corn meal, flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Use as directed in your recipe.

3 tablespoons baking powder is WAY too much for 1 c. of cornmeal! Should be 2 tsp. baking powder per cup of cornmeal. Some recipes call for 3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) per cup. Definitely not 3 tablespoons.

?? Was that a typo? Did you mean 3 TEASPOONS instead? The baking powder flavour was overwhelming ....every formula I've come across seems to be closer to 1 Tablespoon:1c. Of meal...would you agree? Are you also at a high altitude? Confused!
